Getting Social Security Number of a Deceased Relative

Getting Social Security Number of a Deceased Relative

Does anyone have an idea as to how I can get the social security number of a deceased relative of mine? It's for my great grandfather. I sent away for military records and one of the optional fields of the form was for his social security number, but I don't have it. How can I get his SSN? I've tried looking on familysearch & rootsweb before. all his personal identification cards etc were thrown out years ago by my aunt. I have nothing on him personally but pictures. Am trying to find all personal records on him I can. Can anyone help?

Sometimes it's listed on a death certificate. But depending on when he was born and if and when he came to the US, he may not have had one.

He was born in 1894 & died 1959. lived all his life in Lancaster County Pa. I can't find one for him but another pair of great grandparents born in 1879 do. I'll try a death certificate. I thought about it but thought I could find it elsewhere. I'll still try it though. Thanks for the idea.
